Eating Bread Does Not Mean You Have An Eating Disorder

Arianne Cohen, a Marie Claire writer joined Overeaters Anonymous because when she went out with people, she was distracted by the bread basket. She also started eating sprinkles as a snack with a tablespoon.

Dinner With Your Husband and His Hooker: Good Idea or Bad Idea?

Dinner With Your Husband and His Hooker: Good Idea or Bad Idea?

he day’s biggest news story has been Charlie Sheen’s hookers-and-blow extravaganza in New York’s Plaza Hotel. While reporting about hookers and blow is always entertaining, my favorite part of the story is this one: Sheen reportedly had dinner that evening with his ex-wife Denise Richards and the hooker he’d hired. While I am all for exes remaining on good terms with each other post-breakup, I don’t know if I could bring myself to go out with my ex and his lady of the evening. More »
